Nioh Remastered for PlayStation 5 flaunts eye-catching features

One of the additional features in the remastered version of Nioh stands out the most. This version will have display options as follows.

  • 4K mode that makes the game run at 60 FPS and 2160p
  • 120 FPS mode allowing the game to run at 1080p
  • PlayStation 5 standard mode, which runs at 60 FPS and 1080p

While the standard PlayStation display runs at 1080p, it shows a significant improvement in details such as shadows, model details, as well as the quality of screen-space reflections.

Further, there are DualSense features in the remastered version of Nioh. GameSpark‘s online preview revealed the use of adaptive triggers for the bow and rifle in the game. Several other weapons will receive haptic support. Additionally, players can turn these features on and off according to their own convenience.

PlayStation had announced in November last year that it would release four titles from the Nioh franchise to celebrate the game’s four-year anniversary.
